Academic Scholarships

Whether you're applying to Azusa Pacific as an freshman or you're looking to transfer, 100% of accepted APU students receive some form of financial aid.

These scholarships are based on a combination of student type, units transferred in, and academic qualifications. SAT or ACT writing section scores are not considered. Recipients will be granted the single highest award for which they qualify and will receive official notification of their award shortly after acceptance to the university.

Award amounts listed are for students enrolling for the first time at Azusa Pacific University during the 2020-21 academic year. All academic scholarships are renewable for up to four years. Please refer to previous catalogs for scholarship/grant awarding information for enrollment that began prior to fall 2019.
